I love this time of the year.
Some call me crazy, but watching the snowflakes fall for the very first time(s) is magical.
Watching the flakes fall from the sky-knowing that if they keep falling there will be a lot of outdoor fun to be had.
Creating a simple layout with only a few mats and stickers allows your photos to sparkle.

Hi everybody. It’s Nicole with a fun winter layout using the new Glacier Designer Paper Pack, Designer Stickers, and the Variety Mat Pack. The blues in this collection are beautiful! I must admit that I said “oooooooh” when I pulled this gorgeous collection out of the box! And it doesn’t stop at the blues… I can’t get enough of the cute little birdie stickers. :)
This collection is perfect for scrapbooking those winter photos! Although we did not get much snow last year, we got maybe an inch or two. Edward was excited to make a snowman, but I had to gently tell him that we weren’t getting that kind of snow. So we went outside so he could eat the snow and then throw fluffy snowballs at mommy for about twenty minutes.

This weekend brought our first snowfall for central Minnesota. It had me all giddy thinking about all the layouts that could be created using the new Glacier Collection. The colors, the patterns, and the sentiments are all perfect for any snow related photos.
I literally had to pull over and take in some of the beauty that was falling from the sky. Come March, I may not feel this way about it, but for now I am going to take it all in.
What is your favorite snow activity?

Dress in layers when heading out to do winter photos and don’t forget your gloves instead of mittens! Also, protect your camera from the winter elements by climatizing it to the cold slowly. Put your camera in your camera bag and put near the front door or in a porch that is colder than the rest of your house, then move your camera bag to the car so it is isn’t directly exposed to the cold, but it is definitely getting colder. This prevents your camera from fogging up when you take it out to start shooting. It is now time to take your camera out into the cold. If it is snowing cover up your camera with a clear plastic bag to protect it from the wet and cut a hole for the lens to fit through. Once your camera is cold you want to avoid getting it warm and then cold again because your lens will fog up similar to your eyeglasses. Also, the condensation is not good for your camera.
Having an extra battery is a good idea. Your camera battery won’t last as long in the cold so have a back up one in your pocket where it is warm.
